40 Days in the Dark

EXHIBITION: 13 March – 2 April

PREVIEW: Thursday 12 March, 6pm – 8pm

As part of our programme to mark 2015 as the UN International Year of Light, our spring exhibition is inspired by a short film ‘Return of the Sun’. This documentary by Glen Milner looks at an Inuit community in Northern Greenland, who spend 40 days of their winter in complete darkness. To tie this in with the season of lent this group show sees artists responding to the theme by exploring personal experiences of how creativity is a form of expression and hope, which can help us journey through dark places and into light. Partnering with Newcastle and Gateshead Art Studio (NAGAS), the exhibition features work by some of its members as well as powerful interpretations by artists including Kay Steven, Lorraine Udell, Fetlework Tesfaye and many more.
